I'm a thirty-something father, husband, and K-State fan (in that order). I have a limited knowledge of information that most people would find useful, however, I have an inordinate amount of useless trivia and sports-related factoids at my disposal, and I love to write stories that make people laugh (which is ultimately what lead me here).

My role at "Bring on the Cats" is to provide levity, satire, and hopefully a few laughs here and there. I am no journalist, nor do I pretend or care to be. I leave that to much more capable bloggers than myself.

Also, from time to time, I like to challenge the status quo and common thinking because at Kansas State, we love the status quo and group think. Love it.

I'm speculating that if it were really anything, it may be a bat. I have no idea how a squirrel could have gotten up there.

I also need to clarify that my wife "hears things". So, if PB is telling me that you don't really hear them from the inside, that tells me that she's probably just hearing things.
